Alexandra is a disabled medical student, training to become one of

very few deafblind doctors in the NHS.  An ex-sportsperson training

at international level in both swimming and skiing, a diagnosis of a

progressive mitochondrial disease that has led to bouts of critical

illness has meant having to swap her sporting commitments for a

physically less demanding lifestyle.  Alexandra thus now spends

much of her time of outside studying Medicine doing photography,

writing, art, blogging about food, travel and life, and documenting

her own experiences of health, disability and wellbeing, through a

passion and purpose of inspiring, motivating and reassuring others.
